Why are the diaries changing their name to Angkitja?

For many years IAD Press have very successfully used the imprint ‘Jukurrpa Books’ – Jukurrpa is a Warlpiri word meaning ‘Dreaming’, Story’ or ‘Law’.

The Institute for Aboriginal Development (IAD) the publisher,  is committed to the promotion of cultural authority and recognition, and as IAD and IAD Press are situated on the banks of the Todd River in the heart of Arrernte country, our Board and our Elders believe that appropriate recognition and deference be given to the people on whose land IAD stands on by changing the imprint to ‘Angkitja Books’ –

Angkitja is the Eastern, Central and Western Arrernte word for “keeping information safe for the future”.

To our Warlpiri, Luritja, Pitjantjatjara and Yankunitjatjara friends – IAD thanks you for allowing them to use your language for so many years on our products and we pay homage to your Elders both past and present who allowed us to do so.
